Top filmmaker Keegan Kuhn - the co-director behind Cowspiracy and What the Health - is releasing a new film.
Running for Good is the official Fiona Oakes documentary. It follows Oakes - a veteran of more than 50 marathons - in her attempt not only to set a new global record in endurance racing, but to compete in the 'toughest footrace on earth' the Marathon Des Sables, 250km race through the Sahara Desert.
Kuhn spoke about the must-see movie in this exclusive interview with Plant Based News' Founder Klaus Mitchell.

Kuhn - who describes Oakes as 'an amazing person with an amazing backstory' - told Mitchell: "Oakes has run pretty much every extreme race in the world, and she does that to promote veganism and to show you that a vegan diet doesn't hold you back from doing anything."
Speaking about the film, which he described as 'a really exciting, beautifully shot sports documentary', he said: "It's a departure from Cowspiracy and What the Health...it's a single story...and really an emotional and inspiring documentary.
"I think a lot of people who are athletically-minded, who think they have to eat animal products to continue with their sports, will be inspired to realize you can do anything on a plant-based diet - and it might even benefit your athleticism."
